Direct Care in Dermatology
The direct care model is simply providing medical care when you need it, without hindrance from outside parties. There are no hidden fees, no surprise bills, no co-pays or insurance middlemen. It is NOT a concierge model. There is NO membership fee.
Why this model
1. Providing direct care to you cuts costs, provides transparency and simplifies medical care for the patient and physician.
2. Direct care models decrease costs by cutting out the overhead that comes with dealing with third parties (insurance companies, government agencies, employers, and other regulations) that often dictate when, how and the type of care you receive. The cost of your complete office visit is generally no more than most people’s cell phone bill or a special meal with your family. You will know exactly what the costs are before services are rendered.
3. We understand that this may not be the preferred option for everyone. However, we believe that, especially with the current economic turmoil, direct care offers easy access to affordable services for individuals with high deductible insurance policies and those who have no insurance coverage.
4. This modern, progressive practice model will restore the traditional doctor-patient relationship. It will allow Dr. Clemetson to spend more quality time face-to-face with you, customize the best treatment plan for you and decrease your wait time to be seen by a dermatologist.
